Short summary
We introduced a new modified Markov chain model to generate a time series of the earthquake sequences from a global catalogue with an optimum time sampling of 9 days. Here, we subject the time series to a known analysis method namely an ensemble empirical mode decomposition to study the state-to-state fluctuations in each of the intrinsic mode functions. Also, we establish the power-law behaviour of the time series with the Fano factor and Allan factor used in time-correlative behaviour studies
